Neurointerventional care uses microcatheters, similar to cardiac catheters but smaller, in minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat vascular diseases in the brain. Eden’s neurointerventional suite specifically diagnoses and treats aneurysms, vascular stenosis, stroke, and other major neurological diseases.
Neurointerventional technology allows for more comprehensive views of neurovascular structures. It also reduces the amount of trauma to the brain and radiation exposure to the patient.
Until recently, open surgery was often the only option for conditions such as aneurysms, vascular disease and tumors in the brain. However, breakthrough developments in medicine now make it possible for these same conditions to be treated with neurointerventional procedures.
The neurointerventional suite also represents a interdisciplinary approach
as the neurointerventionalist works closely with the neurosurgeon,
anesthesiologist, primary care physician and radiologist to develop the optimal treatment plan for each individual seen for neurointerventional services.
- Aneurysm coiling
- Angioplasty and stenting
- Brain and spinal AVM embolization
- Fistula embolization
- Facial/vascular malformation treatment
- Head/neck tumor biopsy
About the Sutter East Bay Neuroscience Institute
The Sutter East Bay Neuroscience Institute joins the expertise of top San Francisco Bay Area neurosurgeons, neuro-interventionalists, and other neurology / brain specialists with state-of-the-art technology to bring current best practice neurological treatment options to patients in the East Bay region. We have many of the top-rated brain and neurological specialists in the San Francisco East Bay Area, in California, and in the United States. Our brain specialists work with each patient to devise the best treatment options for their neurological conditions such as brain tumors, stroke-related brain issues, and other neurological disorders. We have achieved best in class patient outcomes using primarily minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of brain tumors, vascular disorders, movement disorders, and spinal and peripheral nerve problems. As part of one of the best hospital networks in California, our brain / neurology center includes an Interventional Radiology Suite. What this means to our patients is that we have one of the best neuroscience teams in the San Francisco East Bay area as well as California to take care of them when they need us.
